Total plays on over the last 6 months
    One evening for pleasure I rambled
    On the banks of some cold purling stream
    I set down on a bed of primroses
    And I gently fell into a dream
    I dreamt that I saw a fair female

    My pathway leads into the west
    They say it never really ends
    These legs of mine weren't made to rest
    I let them take me where they send me wandering
    As long as I remember I've been wandering

    Where me and my true love did meet
    It was there, we went a courting
    My love fell off to sleep
    I had a bottle of burgundy wine
